Hike up Serra Piroca, the small mountain that looms over Ilha do Amor, for the best views in town. Yes, the hike is strenuous, but with a commitment of only 45 minutes to an hour, it’s relatively short. And your muscles will forgive you once your neuroreceptors are flooded with the beauty at the top: You’ll have 360-degree views of Alter do Chão, Ilha do Amor, Rio Tapajós and Lagoa Verde.
